The rise of the Aviator
The rise of the Aviator

Some styles simply do not go out of fashion. For sunglasses it’s the ubiquitous Aviator sunglasses. Aviators were developed by Bausch & Lomb in the 1930s for American fighter pilots, to help them handle the increased glare from the sun which was making the pilots nauseous.

Planes were flying higher and faster than before and the existing goggles were no longer viable. Bauch & Lomb created and patented the Aviator sunglasses.
